I don't know whether it's applicable here, but I ran into a
problem years ago where there was a limit on the number of
directories at the root of a file system, but only at the root
of the system. The solution was to create symbolic links in the
top level directory to subdirectories.
I haven't seen this problem on Linux systems, and we have some
/home directories with about 10,000 subdirectories.

Anyone who thinks Microsoft never does anything truly innovative isn't
paying attention to the part of the company that pushes the state of
its art: Microsoft's legal department.
